    Looks good.
    I have a similiar one of the plans for the then proposed Naval Dockyard.
    Perhaps they are from the same period?

    Fort Carlisle was its name Under British Occupation. It was a part of the Treaty ports and did not find its way into Irish hands till 1938. Same goes for the Other forts in the Harbour.

    I'm sure I explained this before....

    Why is it always referred to as Fort Davis then?

    Circa 1990 some Cork RTC (now Cork IT) architecture students did a major project on one of the forst, not sure which one, but I suspect it was the western one.

    Fort Dunree is at Lough Swilly (http://www.dunree.pro.ie/)
    Fort Meagher (Camden) is not visitable (yet).

    An interesting article written in "Fort" (FSG) about the defenses of Cork (including pictures and plans) you can find at http://www.fsgfort.com/Fort/27/Art4/Fort27-4.htm

    On what scale you think to build the model of Dun an Dábhisigh? It is almost 900 meter long. I am afraid that the batteries will be very small to see details.
